He decides to buy the boat and restore it to its former glory.

Aiden sets his sight on Holly’s father’s old showboat, the River Queen, where they both worked when they were younger. But Holly doesn’t want to sell the boat to Aiden. Her son, Mateo, is obsessed with it and when he is hurt on the boat and Aiden comes to his rescue, Mateo starts to idolize Aiden. Holly doesn’t trust actors after her ex left her for acting. Will Aiden be able to convince Holly that not all actors are alike and some of them are serious about a relationship?
The Four Irish Brothers Winery series is based on the Flaherty brothers in River’s Edge, Indiana. This book is a fantastic addition to the series. I enjoyed Holly and Aiden’s story and catching up with the other characters from previous books. I also enjoyed the family dynamics and small town charm. Mateo is a great part of this story too and steals quite a few scenes.
